Employment insertion of women in social exclusion.
Strength and Sensibility is our motto, referring to male and female principles, that we must balance, in the current model of society, technologically developed, but humanly underdeveloped. Two different worlds, external and competitive, and internally and lovingly, masculine or feminine, that have coexisted throughout our history, but in which the first one has imposed its dominion over the second, with the consequences that we all know of inequality and social injustice.
The feminine and masculine principles and values are not exclusive to each sex, but shared by men and women. Being like this, there are men who, in their strength, unite an exquisite sensibility, just as there are women who, without renouncing their feminine sensitivity, give themselves a force and drive that allows them to compete and succeed in spaces traditionally dominated by men such as those of economics and finance, politics or technology.
Women starred in the greatest social revolution of our Era.
With our social integration our society has reached the highest levels of prosperity, happiness and freedom never before achieved in the history of humanity. Therefore, the women's revolution, promoting social progress, must continue! Well, just like this, we can overcome the deep social, ethical, political, economic and environmental crisis in which we are, developing all our human potential for power and happiness in a much better and fairer and more egalitarian world.

Mujeres Felices Foundation was founded by Emma Jimenez and her husband, Rafael Puertas. Based on experiences from their personal and professional lives, they were particularly aware of the causes and consequences of inequality between women and men, in Spain and in countries around the world. With the understanding that the devaluation of the feminine in relation to the masculine is the origin of the different forms of discrimination and mistreatment that women face, they decided to create a new organization, dedicated to the defense of women’s rights and female empowerment, starting with an appreciation of what is feminine. Those ideas, reflected in the Manifesto of Mujeres Felices, have been realized in the different projects created and implemented by the foundation on behalf of thousands of women in Spain and in the world.
MUJERES FELICES FOUNDATION is registered as a foundation with the Spanish Ministry of Education and Culture as number 848 and with CIF G-649916810.
The social objectives of the foundation are:
